Pu Er Sheng 2003 Yiwu Sheng Tai

Product code: CSTVI-212
Add to my notebook

From one of Yunnan’s most prized terroirs (a favorite among collectors), this 2003 Yiwu Pu er is made from hundred year old tea trees.

Great quality harvest and controlled aging in Hong Kong combine for a deep and complex tea.

Rinsing the leaves, the released aromas combine rusticity and finesse (blond tobacco, dry wood and dried flowers). These notes echo the perceived aromas of dried wood, raisins and hemp of the smooth liquor, moving later into a sweet honey and menthol finish.

A great tea to drink now or to be stored for aging.

*Please note that any cakes purchased may have slightly reduced in weight (up to 10%) due to changes in climate and relative humidity.
